      Before the Mark II was finished, I was thinking that I need some rest and maybe stopping modeling completely.
      After a few months "without", I noticed that I'm missing something. But, what to do? A new 10-years project is out of question, I need something less complex.
      After a while, it was clear that I had to do something with Cadillac. But what? The answer came rather quickly: a 1930 to 1933 Cadillac V-16 engine and frame, as a rolling frame.
      I have some contacts with people restoring the second version: 1932/33 which differs framewise from the first version 1930/31.
      I will have to do new things, like wire wheels! I searched in this forum for a tutorial, but found nothing. However , I do remember that somebody did recently (1 to 2 years) wire wheels. Can somebody tell me where to search?

    The construction of the model resumed slowly after our return from France; the second intake manifold is done. I will now try to replicate the carburators, the "fun" will begin!

    Thanks Markus!
    Due to other tasks, the progress is slow on the scale model. I'm doing now the throttle bodies; the one pictured is not yet ready. There are some important details to add...

    They almost look like a pair of espresso makers! Amazing to think they ran a 16 cylinder engine with 2 one barrel carburetors to move such a bug heavy car.

    When enough fuel went through that single barrel, it would move! I agree with you: the power was modest: 165 PS at 3400 RPM. The intake manifold is also something not created to have a similar fuel/air mix for all cylinders: the tubes were short at the center and very long for the outside 4 cylinders (per bank). However, by looking at various brands, it was done that way during this time.
